    Production isn't up because of Obama. Preduction is up because of all the drilling that was done before Obama took office.

    Of course. We know the right wing mantra by this late date: anything bad that has happened since January 20, 2009 is the fault of Barack Obama. Anything good that has happened is directly attributable to anything other than Barack Obama.

    If it were not so pathetically lame and predictable like that little rubber hammer hitting your knee, it would be funny. Instead, its merely sad.

    Hey, you are the one who said that "what's good for the country" is almost always debatable...as if that justified Obama's flip-flopping for political reasons. Now you flip-flop and are chalking it up to "but everyone else does it too".

    Much like Obama, you can't place responsibility where it lies...with the man himself.


    So it goes.

    Cry me a river, dude. LOL!!

    If gas reaches $5.00 a gallon, it won't matter if the consumer puts an R, a D, a C or an L behind their own name...they'll blame Obama.

    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    OK, quick quiz, which strait does a lot of oil come through?

    Now, is that strait currently an international hot spot because of our foreign policy toward one of the nations bordering said strait?

    Now, if said nation acquired nuclear weapons because our policy was too soft, that would be bad, right?

    So, should Obama take it easy on Iran so there's no problem in the Strait of Hormuz to keep gas prices low?

    Didn't think so.

    Yeah, and the price of gold today is a reflection of what they mined in Deadwood.

    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    The only piece of evidence you can correlate with Obama and increasing gas prices, would him not bringing back a sound monetary system. The increase in gas prices has to do with the devaluation of our dollar, our dollar is getting weaker and weaker therefore we have to pay more money for the same amount of goods.
